The Google Code-in 2016 contest has completed. Winners were announced on January 30, 2017.
Pre-university students ages 13 to 17 are invited to take part in Google Code-in: Our global, online, contest introducing teenagers to the world of open source. With a wide variety of bite-sized tasks, it’s easy for beginners to jump in and get started no matter what skills they have. Mentors from our participating organizations lend a helping hand as participants learn what it’s like to work on an open source project.

Open Source Mentoring Organizations
This year 17 organizations have created thousands of tasks for students to work on.
Google chooses participating organizations from those who have previously demonstrated a strong ability to mentor and guide students in Google Summer of Code. Each year, mentors report inspiring stories about the teenagers they work with!
